The Continuing "Saga"

July 25, 2018

The battle with the "stuff" continues and there are days I believe we are winning...and then I walk around. We will be telling our kids to not accumulate "stuff" but not until they take the "stuff" from here. Fair is fair, we bought this house from my parents and they left "stuff" behind.

The "fun" continues with the insurance company that is suppose to take care of getting the Stinger "B" fixed. They sent a check and we are sure they hoped we would take the money and run. No such luck it doesn't cover a third of the damages and we want it fixed. It was not our accident. They did suggest we take the check and have the body shop start the repairs and then as they needed more parts/money they could re-submit. Does anybody know a body shop who would be thrilled with that working situation? Another suggestion was to contact our insurance company which we did and they contacted the other insurance company and were told no problem they want to fix our motor home back to the way it was and get us down the road. So today Tom backed it out of the driveway and we brought it back to the body shop where their adjuster talked with the body shop person as to what  needed to be done and why. So back in the driveway it is and we wait again. I keep thinking about in the past when we have had a claim with our insurance how quickly and efficiently it was handled. Nothing has ever taken this long. Fingers crossed it gets in the shop by mid-August. 

We have been spending time with our local grandchildren and in mid-August we will have all of them here for a few days which will be fun, tiring but fun.

  2. Good luck with the repairs, you are not alone with the issues involving repairs. Our friends Rose and George are undergoing similar but different upsets with their motor home.
    Purging is good for the mind, body and soul! Remember that! :)

    1. I keep reminding myself just that and about the weight that will be lifted when it is done. It will feel so good to have all this stuff gone.

  3. We remember both processes, getting rid of STUFF and getting Insurance Repairs. Both were easier when we were Home Owners but we don't miss them.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  4. My insurance company handled everything, even though the accident was not my fault. They immediately contacted the repair shop and paid for it all, then collected from the OTHER company. Sure would make it easier for you.

    I am a "stuff" collector too. I'm trying to lessen the load, but things like the last pair of leather slippers made by one native Indian lady in Alaska are hard to part with. Same goes for the Polynesian dance rattles. Yeah, I have some weird stuff!! Good luck!!!

    1. Not sure either of those items are weird stuff. Some days it is the easiest thing to just say get rid of it and the next I feel like I am hanging on for dear life. Though there was more of the hanging on in the beginning which is why we will be purging the storage locker next year. Luckily I have a very good inventory of what is in each box so that will make that process easier.

    1. Hugs back! Tom is determined to get it done and does not want to leave until it is For Sale so that is the incentive at this point...lol
